“Of Love--may God exalt you! -the first part is jesting, and the last part is right earnestness. Somajestic are its diverse aspects, they are too subtleto be described; their reality can only beapprehended by personal experience.

Ibn Hazm

7.The views of Ibn Hazm on Love.
He has a philosophy about love, he believes that souls are scattered in theair and when they meet, they feel love.The theory of love is based on similar characteristics.Al hubbil hudri (thelove that is humble and not lustful).The first part is jesting and the last part is right earnestness.Love is neither disapproved by Religion nor prohibited by law for everyheart is in God’s handsLove is not about physical attraction but it starts with it.Love just happens;it is natural.The noble love –passions of heart with righteousness and pietyNature of love –conjunction between scattered parts of souls that have metin universeLoves is based on assimilations and similarity in characteristicsPhysical attraction not very important, but it is what leads loveTry to find natural attributes that you both shareHe takes the literal meaning of things…..In this book he was looking fornoble love not lustful loveLove is halal, for every heart is in Allah’s handsLove is a sickness, ailment; its remedy depends on the degree of their loveIbn Hazm says that love is natural, but can Allah test us with this?
 
Yes, Allah always tests us to see our obedience in himDoes Ibn Hazm agree with “opposites attract”?
 
Yes, these characteristics are like having similarities in love.
 
Ex. Hold a snowball in your hand and it will still have the sameeffect as holding a burning coal.In conclusion, you will not find two people in love unless there are somesimilarities.Humans are born perfect and you are attracted to theperfection of the person
